  1. Advice, Consent, and Political Hay

    Should the Senate reject presidental nominees to high court for simply any reason at all? Or, does the “Advice and Consent” clause imply that there must be specific and serious reasons?

  2. Progressive Consumption Tax?

    President Bush’s Tax Reform Panel will offer two proposals in their final report, according to CNN/Money:
    The panel’s second proposed plan would add to the system a progressive consumption tax.
    It would, among other things:

  3. Ronnie Earle: Fake but accurate?

    We started out largely agnostic about Tom DeLay and about his indictment for campaign finance law violations. But now it appears more and more that those characterizing prosecutor Ronnie Earle as a political hack were right.

  8. Now the Palm Beach Post needs a civics lesson

    There is one compelling reason. Our legislators make the laws, not law enforcement. Our elected officials have the right to make the law here, get over it Palm Beach Post.

  13. DeLay Denies Democrats a “Perp Walk”!

    Tom DeLay could not have handled this better. The left in this country was salivating over the spectacle of seeing him hauled away in handcuffs and given the obligatory “perp walk”. Instead Congressman Tom DeLay turned himself in, well groomed sporting…

  14. Gaza Developments

    I’ve been watching the reports of chaos in Gaza, gunbattles between the PA and Hamas, and lawlessness on the Gaza-Egyptian border with interest. The “international community” got what it wanted, and now the Potemkin Village of Palestinian responsibi…

  18. Racial Politics

    Every now and then it occurs to me that since the first hominids evolved in Africa, then technically, under the terms of the one-drop rule, the entire human population is African-American. This means we can throw out all these stupid prejudices and pre…

  19. Syria Behind Harari Assassination

    Now, this is the UN we’re talking about, so what will be their response? Will they issue a harshly worded statement? Will they pass a resolution in the General Assembly? Sanctions? A Security Council resolution?

  27. Congress OKs Gun Industry Lawsuit Shield
